Tracdat 5 Resources

Several new features, and a refreshed user interface, were incorporated into the new release of Tracdat (TD5). New training resources will be posted on this page as they become available. The Assessment Committee supports faculty and staff in assessment activities, and in the use of Tracdat, through a variety of resources and professional development opportunities. In addition, the Committee offers an Assessment Template to submit assessment findings which we will enter for you in Tracdat. Please contact Dr. Myton or member of The Assessment Committee for assistance.

Training and Assessment Resources

Schedule an "Assessment Bee" for your School or administrative unit.

  • Bee(bē) 1.Any of numerous winged, hairy-bodied, usually stinging hymenopteran insects 2. A social gathering where people combine work, competition, and amusement: a quilting bee, or an assessment bee. (
  • The Assessment Committee is holding a series of "assessment bee" events with school faculty. In this time block, ranging from 2-4 hours, members of the Assessment Committee will be present to assist with refining course-level student learning outcomes, identifying realistic measures of student learning, documenting evidence of student learning and of the school's use of that learning evidence. We can also help with Tracdat entry if that is needed.
  • Please notice that Tracdat comes LAST. We want to emphasize that the focus is on documenting our use of assessment data to improve student learning. Assessing student learning does take time, and we know that is time not spent in instruction, grading and so forth. However, instruction, if it doesn't lead to learning, is of questionable value. And assessment, if not a meaningful measure of student learning, is also of questionable value. Finally, assessment doesn't improve instruction unless and until we use what we learn to improve student learning.
